As people, throughout our lives we will hit walls. Not physically but mentally. And I don’t know whether it’s due to getting older or having a lot of time on my hands by having no social life and no relationship…but with more time you notice a lot more. These are small things that generally go unseen to people with busy lives. But it’s one of them things that once you see it, you can’t unsee it.

Now I’ve been single for almost two years now (a long time yeah), and to be honest I don’t hate it. I’m by no means living my life how a single person should live their life, and I’m attempting to tackle that in my own way but that’s not really what this blog is about. This blog is really about sorting out and getting my life in order before that and probably doing a lot of venting to make myself feel better and put my mind at ease a bit.

The first thing I really want to rant about, is being sick of people’s shit. That doesn’t sound as bad as it is. Like yeah I get everyone has problems, heck I’m probably one of the best people to be considerate of that. But once you’ve been mugged off (yes I’ve been watching Geordie shore, so I’m picking up the lingo of a cool Newcastle kid) anyway, once you’ve been mugged off by one friend and someone points it out, it’s only then when you realise it and then in turn see how everyone else has in their own way followed suit.

I mean yeah I understand I’m not the best friend in the world, I cancel plans due to anxiety issues and I won’t always let on. But fuck me, not to toot my own horn but I remember details no one else will bother, I am one of the most loyal and considerate people you could ever meet. Given the chance I will open up as much as possible to anyone that has the time, and will listen and help in any way I can in return. But I’m getting to the point where I really don’t see the point. I don’t want to stop being the way I am because I think it’s a good thing. I mean I’ve already got close to the point where I don’t really see the point in letting any relationships come close to me. But when friends drop you, and start being short with you and ignoring you…what the hell is the actually point. People even do it without realising it.

I think this has been building up inside me for a while now and I’m just done. I don’t even know what else to say. Fuck it.

Thing’s No One Has Time For! πŸ˜“

As a constant user of many social media platforms, it becomes very apparent when a problem occurs with it or if something just isn’t worth the hassel…so here’s a list of five things that I find wrong with social media.

  1. Blowing things out of proportion: this is a pretty obvious one that happens daily. Whether it’s something ridiculous like a celebrity relationship, or just general media. Somehow, someone somewhere creates it into something it’s not…when really that time could be spent evaluating real hard-hitting news.
  2. Links that bounce back up when trying to scroll: the amount of time I’ve spent trying to find out the tiniest bit of information. I mean it can’t just be me that gets annoyed with it and people must complain so why doubt they sort it out 😩.
  3. Links that give you one sentence of information over so many pages: I mean why? Just why? I could understand it for click purposes to track how many people go on your site but surely it gives you that information when you click on the link in the first place…
  4. Twitter fame: ok this is more personal. I really don’t understand how people who barely use the app get so many followers. It really confuses me…like how? Just how?
  5. Private profiles: now I get that most of the time private profiles are for safety…but some times people just want to be nosey. I mean for example when someone follows you on instagram and you want to see who’s followed and you can’t because theirs is private…I mean come on dude your stalking me let me stalk you back πŸ˜‚.

Anywaayyy I’ll stop ranting now. I just get annoyed sometimes πŸ˜“.

IOS9Β 

Ok so like many others, I am indeed an apple user. And seen as I haven’t been living under a rock I knew that there was an update due yesterday, but this wasn’t the exciting part. The exciting part for me was the emojis. I am an over active emoji userπŸ˜πŸ’€πŸ˜‚πŸ˜πŸ’©… so to learn new emojis were on the way was brilliant! Until of course I did the update…and they were nowhere to be seen. πŸ˜“

Now I probably missed the memo but I read nowhereΒ and I repeat nowhereΒ that the new emojis wouldn’t be included 😐 not cool Apple! Not cool! πŸ˜‘ Because of this I went googling to find out why this was.

The answer: these new emojis will actually be included in the next update which is expected in November.

How disappointing! I mean overall I am happy with the layout and changes that come with the update but still…it was a sad day for Apple users everywhere yesterday. πŸ‘·πŸ½

Moving Onwards and Upwards

For a few months now I’ve been waiting for something to happen at work…a promotion. But in life, we don’t always get what we think we are going to get. In a way I’m angry about that. Not because I lost out on the opportunity, but because it held me back from doing other things that would have made me happier. By now if I had left this job when I had the chance, I could have probably already saved up some money I needed to go travelling. Which of course is annoying. Never the less, eventually we always end up on the road we belong on…That road for me is travelling, and creating.

In a way I’m glad this happened, because after all everything is a learning experience. I have more skills now then what I did. I had more time to think things over in terms of where I want to go. I also had more time to realise that I have other options that I didn’t even know existed. So there are ups and downs to the situation I’ve found myself in.

Anyway to kickstart my ‘new lease of life’ as I’m calling it. I have decided I am opening up my own horizons; and the first step of this is by claiming I am a photographer. Just to say I am being truthful when doing so…I know I said claiming but that’s just because I know I’m nowhere near as professional as those who are actual photographers. I’ve set up a new instagram page soley for this purpose, and also a Facebook page so I will leave links if anyone’s interested. That’s all for now πŸ™‚ I just needed a little rant and a boost.

P.S I used to be just a man…now I am a man with a plan!

P.P.S (Just for clarification I am in fact a woman) πŸ™‚

Foundation…

Now normally I love shopping. However one thing I actually hate to buy is… foundation. There’s just so many choices, all for different skins types, in a mass variety of shades and colours, and majority of them costing quite a bit to a girl who can only get part time jobs (not through choice).

Now I think a lot of guys reading this could believe there’s a simple solution to this problem. Just don’t buy it! But there’s so many reasons why we feel we must. For example to make ourselves feel better. I mean most days majority of women can’t just roll out of bed and look ‘hot as hell’. For some of us it takes a little bit more than that.

Anyway getting back into what I was talking about, the whole process of finding a brand new foundation after deciding you fancy a change from your ‘normal’ foundation is just all in all stressful. Yes you can do research before going to the shops, because after all the internet is packed full of blog reviews, vlog reviews and even just shop reviews. But that just isn’t enough! Reading a review online and having the product at hand are two completely different things. I mean I do the swab test (on the back of my hand) and sometimes even that’s not helpful. It’s as if the product changes from the time you put it on the back of your hand, go to purchase it, and then get it home! Before you know it that’s Β£9 you’ve wasted on a product you hate.

Am I the only on who has this thought process? Is there no solution to this nightmare….or am I just being a massive girl?

Ughhh! *exhales* Rant over!
